SCREAMING AT RANDOM SHIT!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Lots goin’ on around our parts, so let’s jump into it!

First off, tons of thanks go out to you Scream Freaks who’re still out there fightin’ for our show to play freely without any censorship from Troma. More of you have told us about you contactin’ them, and we’re humbled each and every update. While there hasn’t been any change in their bafflin’ decision to shut down non-profit parody reviews celebratin’ their movies, we have been in touch with some of their past filmmakers by chance! We informed B.C. Butcher director Kansas Bowling of her characters bein’ animated but censored after she liked a fan’s tweet suggestin’ we review her flick, and the director of Attack of the Tromaggot reached out to us in response to reviewin’ his film in Screaming Soup! episode 31, Attack of the Tromaggot vs Shrunken Heads. That was a big shock, and we got to explain to him why his movie monster’s break into animation had to be censored. The latest appeal to Troma we’ve been made aware of comes from loyal Scream Freak Paladin Demo, and he’s allowin’ us to share his words below. Thank ya kindly!

In other news, we’re currently workin’ with the musical talent of Brian Barnes aka Grim Reaper from Your Final Answer to produce original stock music for Screaming Soup! which is a lot of fun. If you haven’t heard yet, Brian’s retired the monkey and banana skits to try his hand at a new show called Mondopiece Theatre reviewin’ some really obscure flicks you might have never heard of or care to watch. He just released his 4th episode this week reviewin’ some Mexican biker gang flick, so check it out.

And speakin’ of workin’ with such great talent, we’re doubly excited to be joined by Lost Story Studios, a creative gang of guys behind some of Full Moon’s latest mayhem like the Gingerdead Man comics and Full Moon’s latest feature, Evil Bong 666. After meetin’ on the convention circuit, they overheard us bitchin’ about needin’ a better Gingerdead Man voice for upcomin’ episodes, and they offered to step up to the mike and spit some Busey inspired lines for starvin’ art. Crazy brave fellas who are sure to elevate the quality of the show!

We also want to give another shout out to the winner of this past “Spot the Dollman Contest,” James Lohmann from Markham, IL. After so many complaints the Dollman was too easy to find in previous episodes, we made this round especially challengin’, and he rose to the occasion. Those are some good eyes, James! You couldn’t have won a Full Moon DVD and original Screaming Soup! art without them.


Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup! Seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films and comics we’re checkin’ out in our blogs, R-Rated Reviews and Sequential Slime, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

Warm up some Screaming Soup! leftovers with reruns scheduled to play on Sluggo’s The Vortexx (after 9PM EST Sunday and Wednesday nights)!

If you need the hook-up with instant Troma and Full Moon movies, we’d suggest watching Troma’s films for free on their Youtube channel, and you can get full access to Full Moon’s catalog of work from their movies to their Videozone clips at Full Moon Streaming and their Amazon channel.

See ya later, Scream Freaks!

SCREAMING AT FILM FACTS AND SHOUT OUTS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! The verdict’s in and it sounds like y’all are enjoyin’ this epic 4th season sure enough, but there’s been some confusion and questions surroundin’ the storyline. Aside from the controversy over whether or not the booger from the closet officially won his fight with Rawhead Rex this past episode, some of you have been hittin’ us up askin’ why certain characters are included in Full Moon’s army of super freaks. More specifically, our horror fanfare’s been challenged with Scream Freaks tellin’ us characters from movies like Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Rawhead Rex have no place on Full Moon’s dance card for this war. Well, sit down before ya’ fall down, Scream Freaks, and learn somethin’!

When we here at Screaming Soup! think Full Moon, we think of its head honcho, Charles Band. Charlie’s been in showbiz for a long time and is partly responsible for an assload of horror and sci-fi films fans have no problem recognizin’. His first notable company that pumped out a lot of popular flicks was Empire Pictures which produced and/or distributed films like Re-Animator, From BeyondRawhead Rex, and too many others to name. After a few years, Charlie relocated his base of operations and transitioned to bein’ Full Moon as part of that move. So, since we identify Full Moon as Charlie and Charlie was Empire, then Full Moon = Empire for us. This is why the Jeffrey Combs characters refer to Charlie as Emperor Band as an acknowledgment of their ties to Empire Pictures. Plus, for entertainment purposes, this parody war is 10x more fun addin’ all those Empire characters with Full Moon’s current stars like Gingerdead Man and Killjoy. And if you need more proof, Scream Freak, just refer to the book Empire of the ‘B’s: The Mad Movie World of Charles Band by Dave Jay. Herbert West, Rawhead Rex, and From Beyond are even on the cover with Charlie!

Now that we got that off our chest, we got a few shout outs this week. First, we wanna congratulate a couple of Scream Freaks. Brandon Riggs from Wellsville, OH won this past episode’s “Spot the Dollman Challenge” and got himself a copy of Intruder with an original piece of Screaming Soup! art. Joe Kerr recently had a birthday, so everyone here’s screamin’ him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY because we always need an excuse for cake. We also had the pleasure of meetin’ the author behind the Gingerdead Man comics this past weekend, Brockton McKinney. Lots of fun to talk to and an important man ’round Full Moon ’cause he wrote the latest Evil Bong flick comin’ 4/20/17. Be sure to check out his company Lost Story Studios to see all the comics and movies he’s up to with his gang. And finally, our good friend the Grim Reaper has been bustin’ his ass on a new show, Mondopiece Theatre, and just released his newest episode which we’ve posted below for your pleasure. Give it a peek and tell him what you think!
